This segment covers travel from La Plata, Missouri to Salina, Kansas. If you have not yet read the first day of this Tesla road trip from Anaheim, California, to Richfield, Utah, then please click here to read that first.
Below you will find the day, date, time, and time zone in BOLD for each location for when we arrived and departed. You will also find the letters "MP" followed by a four digit number. "MP" stands for "Mile Post" and is a left over from the days that I used to write travelogues of my rail travels. The MP starts at 0000 at the departure from my Anaheim Vacation House and will indicate how many miles we've traveled so far as we arrive at each location. Along with the location there will usually be a reading of how many miles of charge are remaining on the battery on arrival and then again on departure after charging. Additional information might also be listed. For example, if at a train station, a list of the trains serving that station might be shown which may be a clickable link to further information about that particular train service.

This particular web page only contains photos. There is no report from this particular day of our round-trip road trip from Anaheim, California, to La Plata, Missouri, and back. Almost five years after doing this trip I realized that I never completed writing the reports for the rest of this road trip. I also realized there was no way to reach the web pages containing the photos of the rest of the road trip. On January 5, 2020, I revamped and posted the remainder of the pages so that you can at least view the photos from all of the days of the road trip.

The purpose of this trip was to attend the Ribbon Cutting event of the New Tesla Destination Charging Stations at the Depot Inn & Suites, 1245 N Brown St, La Plata, MO 63549, on Wednesday at 4pm on May 27, 2015. At that time my wife and I owned that hotel. We sold and no longer own the hotel a few years ago but we still own the 40 acre Silver Rails Vineyards & Winery. Click here for more info.
